This cat collection was made possible because MK Taxi’s drivers know Kyoto very well and they also know where all of the cats are! All of the cats are treated respectfully from a distance and none were disturbed during the process of making this collection. The cat’s feelings and wellbeing is the main priority!

Fun Fact

The `V` shape cut on the stray cat’s ears is to indicate that the stray cat had been spayed/neutered and taken care of by the vet. This is a common practice in Japan to hep people know that the stray cat is being taken care of by people in the community. Spayed cats become less aggressive, makes less noise, and are overall healthier. This reduces the impact to society so that cats and people in Japan can co-exist in harmony.


Let us know in the comments what kind of names you would give to these cats based on how they look!
